As you touch on later, where would we be if you were Gillis' adviser in the summer of 2010?

"An older European backup goalie?? He's never even been a starter?? No no, don't sign him - he had ONE good playoffs! way too small of a sample."

"A college defenseman who wasn't even drafted? Passed over 3 times? Of course you shouldn't sign him, he hasn't even played a single full season in college. Listen, Mike, we need these contract slots in case we find someone we want to sign!"
